Winemaker's Notes

100% Tempranillo

Critical Acclaim

"The 2006 Mibal is 100% Tempranillo aged for 12 months in French oak. It is opaque purple with a super-expressive nose of mineral, spice box, cedar, leather, blackberry, and licorice. Dense and layered, it has gobs of sweet fruit, incipient complexity, several years of aging potential, and a lengthy finish. Drink this superb effort from 2011 to 2022. "
